Three Reasons to Choose Invisalign
- Healthier Teeth – When teeth are crooked they form nooks that are difficult to clean and this invites bacteria. Plaque builds up and can cause gum problems, cavities, and possible tooth loss. In addition to helping prevent tooth decay and cavities, healthier teeth with Invisalign© can alleviate a number of dental issues, such as jaw stress, trauma to the jawbone and jaw joints, and uneven wear on the teeth and gums. Misaligned teeth also cause chipping, grinding, and abnormal erosion on both teeth and gums.
- Healthier Gums – Overcrowding of teeth can also cause the gums to become swollen, inflamed, and invite gum disease. This can have systemic as well as local implications.
- Cleaner Oral Hygiene – With Invisalign, patients can remove their clear aligner trays prior to thorough brushing and flossing, which isn’t always possible with traditional braces. Furthermore, braces are notorious for trapping food. On the other hand, Invisalign© aligners are removed prior to eating, which eliminates furthering a dental hygiene issue.
Overall Health Benefits of Invisalign
A number of studies have confirmed what dentists and orthodontists have known for decades: oral health has a strong correlation to overall health. In a study conducted by the American Dental Association, researchers found that oral infections can contribute to much more serious conditions, including heart disease, pneumonia, diabetes, and stroke. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign© clear aligners are removable so that patients can thoroughly brush and floss, reducing the likelihood of cavities and oral infections that can lead to serious health conditions.
Straightening the teeth with Invisalign© can also alleviate a number of additional conditions that are caused by crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, such as headaches, jaw tension, TMJ disorders, and eating and speaking difficulties.
